As you can see from the video and pictures the laptop is in Very Good Condition, I have only noticed the following minor cosmetic imperfections and signs of use

  • Minor scuffs / scratch marks to the lid, the bottom half of the letter E is missing from the Lenovo logo. The top edge of the lid has a slight sticky feel 
  • Minor scuffs / scratch marks to the bottom case one of the rubber feet is missing
  • A little shine to some of the keys purely cosmetic all keys work just fine and have been properly cleaned 
  • The screen has a few faint white blemishes across the middle, more prominent on a bright white background when viewed from an angle as demonstrated in the product video 

Preparation, Diagnostics & Cleaning

The internal fan has been removed cleaned, hoovered & new thermal paste applied to the heat sink then re-seated and sprayed with compressed air to ensure of a cool quiet running experience as you can see from the good processor temperature reading via the Core Temp App shown in the product picture. The motherboard is checked for any signs of liquid spills then hoovered and sprayed with compressed air to remove any dust or debris. The keyboard has been fully tested and hoovered & cleaned with a sanitizer solution using a toothbrush to remove any dirt and grime! All exteriors of the laptop are then cleaned with a sanitizer solution using a microfiber cloth. The screen is cleaned using a non-smear solution and a specialized LCD screen cleaning cloth. All ports are checked and tested as working.

The SSD has been checked using the Crystal Disk Info application and as you can see in the product picture it reports Good health. The laptop then has a full diagnostic scan to ensure there are no failings or issues, as you will see in the video it passed without any issues. It is then left to run for at least 24 hours without been allowed to sleep or hibernate to ensure no issues develop.


This model has a replacement external 6 cell battery, Windows has indicated 5:43 after a full charge the laptop has then been left to run on the battery without been allowed to sleep or hibernate or turn the screen off for 1:30 hours after which Windows indicated 4:14 remaining @ 75% capacity. The Battery Info View tool is also used to obtain the readings of the battery health which is 100% as shown in the last picture in the listing photos. This will vary depending on usage and settings and is an indication only I offer no guarantees on the battery as it is a used consumable item

All Windows, System & Bios Updates are applied at the time of listing so it’s ready to go!

As you will see the laptop has a tamper evident security seal on the rear of the laptop if this is removed or damaged this may invalidate the warranty and return process
